Interview with Chiara Dynys

In honour of International Women's Day, we have the pleasure of interviewing Chiara Dynys, an esteemed artist who has had a significant impact on the Italian contemporary art scene. It was almost a decade ago that Chiara selected Scala to license her artwork and handle her copyright, as she strived to share her uniquely imaginative work with audiences worldwide.
